Tanzania has focused on providing quality basic education as a tool for fighting poverty, ignorance and disease. Thus, this study was conducted to examine education policy on ways the issue of quality education is stipulated; assess teachers and parents perceptions of quality basic education; and to determine whether the strategies that teachers use suffice to ensure the provision of quality education in selected primary schools in Moshi Rural, Tanzania. Data were collected from 70 respondents including 60 teacher respondents, 10 key informants using various sources such as questionnaires, researcher’s diary and checklist. The study found that although the goals of Tanzania Education Policy on basic education is to improve the quality of the education, there is no proof that quality education is provided for all the children given the fact that many classes are overcrowded. Further, the study found that there is a need to dedicate more resources to enable friendly school environment and ensure adequate facilities for inclusive education. The study suggests improving teaching and learning resources. Further the study suggests to the government and development partners supporting the development of Primary schools in the country to revisit their plans and priorities to meet the challenges posed in the study.
